Working bee at beach

Friday 24 February 2012 | Published in Regional


Many hands make light work and volleyball players, families and supporters are encouraged to lend a hand at this Saturday’s working bee to help with clearing the beach volleyball site in Nikao.

The Nikao site opposite the Nikao Social Centre and next to the National Tennis Centre and Rarotonga Golf Club includes two international sized volleyball courts.

Cook Islands Volleyball president Hugh Graham says the courts will assist with the development of the sport locally and with promotion of international beach volleyball events being hosted by the Cook Islands.

With the planning of the Cook Islands Volleyball Open indoor and beach competition already under way, Graham hopes that the continuation of working bees will ensure that the courts will be constructed to international standards and ready for play well before November when the open champs are scheduled to take place.

As an added incentive there will be cold drinks and lunch for all those who turn up and help out.

Saturday’s working bee, one of a number that will be held over the coming months, will start at 8am and wrap up at noon with lunch soon after.

Graham is asking all those that have a spare few hours on Saturday morning to bring your shovels and wheelbarrows and together the work will be easier and faster.
